Jail Controversy Update

Clarke County Supervisor Arthur Nelson says the board recently came to an agreement with Sheriff Todd Kemp not to house inmates from Meridian in the Clarke County Jail, at least for the time being.

The city of Meridian had asked Clarke County to house some of its inmates.

An agreement between Meridian and Lauderdale County for the housing of city prisoners expired and the two sides were unable to immediately resolve the money terms of a new contract.
